Earlier today, I realized I needed a kick in the pants. If you do too, hopefully this helps…
I’ve been trying to be healthy and get down to a healthier body weight for a while now, and recently I had gotten a little depressed about it all. I felt like I was getting obsessive and was really focused on working out and wasn’t seeing the results that I wanted. I got totally bummed about how it was and how I just didn’t want to think about what I ate or when my last workout was. I didn’t want to worry about balancing cardio and strength training. I just wanted things to be easy.
Well, too bad sister. It’s not easy. It’s hard work, and sometimes it’s really fucking hard work. But it’s totally worth it. It sucks having to get up early to work out and having to bring piles of veggies to work every morning. But you know sucks worse? Being sick and tired and feeling like crap. Yes, I’ll have to give up binge watching television every night. But I’d rather give up a few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy than give up running around with my kids.
It’s not easy and I have to be focused and dedicated, but being lackadaisical is what got me here in the first place. I have to plan it out and think about what I’m eating because I’ve gone too long eating out of habit and those habits aren’t getting me anywhere good anytime soon. Lasting, permanent change means busting your ass every single day, and then one day it won’t be so hard. But until then, shut up, eat a salad, and do your squats!
